Top 10 Sexiest Redheads in Comics

Here are the 10 sexiest copper-top denizens of the comic book community...

What is it about redheads in comic books? While girls with ginger tops only make up about 1% of the real-world population, there seems to be no shortage of ladies running around fictional rooftops with a head of flaming hair as fiery as the Human Torch€™s dry-cleaning. Is there a crimson conspiracy? Are comic book creators secretly brainwashing generations of unsuspecting boys with a deep-rooted lust for ginger-rooted ladies? Get ready: it€™s the return of the Scarlet Fever, and this time, Charlie Brown isn€™t the only one who is getting all hot and bothered for the little red-haired girl. Here are the 10 sexiest copper-top denizens of the comic book community (with apologies to Archie Andrews who, though quite the looker, just doesn€™t cut it in skintight vinyl).

10. Fairchild

The €˜90s brought two new names to the pantheon of illustrated redheads, each of them throwbacks to past hot-girl archetypes. Of the two, Caitlin Fairchild came from the €œPretty-Ugly Girl€ school of beauty, where all it takes to turn a dork into a supermodel is the removal of eyeglasses, letting down of ponytail €“ and exposure to a series of illegal military drugs to awaken her latent gen-active abilities. Caitlin morphed from wallflower into wow-factor in the span of just one issue, but the effects of her shirt-busting makeover were felt in the bedrooms of countless adolescents for years to come. Following her, ahem, break-out moment, Fairchild joined a group of teenage superfriends known as Gen-13, combining her Princeton book smarts with a level of physical strength that would make She-Hulk green with envy (well, greener than usual).
